This morning, we were just chilling in bed after waking up and then suddenly my 4 year old pointed to the window and said "Where's her head?" I then asked her "Where are you pointing?" she cheerfully respond with "Over there!" and still had her finger towards the curtains. I slowly lowered her hand and held it and told her "I don't see anything," and she said "Oh!" We then stayed silent for a good 30 seconds and my eyes wouldn't leave the curtains as I'm trying to figure out what she's seen. After the 30 seconds or so, she happily said "It's like a ghost!" There wasn't any fear in her voice but she had wanted to go upstairs right away.
After she had washed her face and brushed her teeth, I gently held her and asked her very slowly "Earlier when we were downstairs you told me you saw a ghost," She responded with a "Yeah!" as her face lit up. I continued, "You said 'where's her head?' did you see somebody?" and she said "Mhmm" and I asked her, "Who did you see?" At that moment, her face fell as she told me "I don't know.." and I said "You don't know who it was?" and she said "I saw a body at window.."
A few minutes later when I tried to ask her more questions about the "ghost" she said it would hurt us and that she didn't want to go downstairs to my room anymore. I've then researched on children and the supernatural world and nothing is as how she described it. Katelyn doesn't have an imaginary friend and this is her firs encounter with something like that that I know of.
What can I do to? She's usually honest so I don't know wether to believe her and take action or forget it. Any advice on the whole situation? Frankly, I'm really spooked.
